For Dozenal multiplication tables: 2, 3, 4, 6 are easy. 8, 9, Ζ are medium, only 5, 7 and ΣΎ are hard. Dozenal 7 times table is actually easier than Decimal 6 times(on the odds) table if you know both bases equally well. Like what retina said, Dozenal as the default math base won't leave behind the kids behind.

I've posted my playing dozenal cards on page 4 of this thread.

If I apply your units, I'll have "2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A, B, J, Q, K, A", then I cannot properly play it anymore.

I think that this is a fine place to pause this thread.

You will certainly need to have fonts installed. I use the noto series on my Linux machines but I can't advise on Windows or Mac systems.

That may be sufficient. We can't know unless the fonts are installed.
